The album is very catchy, and almost every song has a prominent chorus and is backed with some orchestral arrangements, but the musicians avoid the self-indulgence for the most part, with one or two exceptions like the ballad the Last of Us, which didn´t seem really convincing. The production is great and the ordering of the songs is very nice, providing a good flow, making the album easy to listen, but also immersive. This is a work of maturity, and although the black metal influences are always well received in a Moonspell album, the less-metal oriented path that they started to follow again is promising. At the least their first step on it, without being earthshaking, helps them to stand as one of the most prominent gothic bands in the recent history. I dare to contradict them and say that their future is not dark, but if they need to believe it to keep making great music, we can only be thankful to that darkness as long as it can be a source of inspiration.
